Costco currently has a pretty nice deal going: a 1 year subscription to MoviePass and a 1 year subscription to Fandor for $89.99. Normally, MoviePass costs $10/month on it’s own ($120/yr), though they recently offered it for $89.95 for a year (since expired). The addition of an additional service for a year for the same price looks like a solid deal for movie lovers.

I’ve written in the past about my love of MoviePass (See: Great deal: Go to the movies every day for $10 a month). In a nutshell, MoviePass works like a prepaid debit card. You go to the theater and check in on your smartphone and choose your movie and they instantly load the card so you can buy your ticket. This enables you to go to a movie every day if you wanted and it works at most theaters since it runs on the Mastercard network. You can check to see if your theater is available by going to MoviePass.com on a desktop computer and scrolling down to the map and the bottom and entering your zip code.
At ninety bucks a year, you’re paying $7.50 a month. In most markets, if you see one movie a month, you’re probably coming out ahead.
With this Costco deal, you get that and a 1-year subscription to Fandor. I wasn’t familiar with Fandor, but it appears to be a Netflix-like streaming website that claims to have “5,000 movies available for streaming”. I don’t know how it compares and whether or not the movies are any good — but even if you only find a few movies you like it’s just adding to the win.
I didn’t want to commit to a year of MoviePass with the upcoming changes in my life, but at this price, and bundled with an additional movie streaming service, I might be in after all. Furthermore, this is a really awesome gift for a movie fan if you’re running down to the wire and looking for a gift.
